“When I started out designing the MOE mid-length range I wanted to have an easy ride and good paddling, while keeping good stability and support.
The bottom is pretty flat with a double concave between your feet, a really good combination for carving turns in a wide board. Rails are not too thick, for sensitivity, and they transition from neutral round forward through round tucked edge to the fin area and low hard behind the fins. The rails are foiled from forward of center toward the tail, for drive through turns and good travel around white water sections. The rocker is pretty even like the HIHP and a 5fin FCS II setup makes this a great fun board / one quiver board for traveling in fun wave areas.”
The Moe is a mid-length that caters equally to beginners, experienced shortboarders looking for a bit more volume on slow days, and experienced longboarders who feel like riding something a bit shorter.
The width and volume distribution give the Moe good paddle power without sacrificing maneuverability, while a flat bottom contour up front gives way to double concave beneath the fins for drive and big carves.
Thin rails that transition from rounded up front to a hard, tucked-under edge through the tail keep the board sensitive and provide control. With a large sweet spot and a variety of fin options available, this is a wide-spectrum, high-performance, user-friendly board that works for all skill levels, and helps bring the fun back to everyday sessions. It really excels in weaker waves.
